Los Angeles-based conceptual artist Rachel Lachowicz (born 1964) is known for turning her acerbically witty eye on the decidedly male realm of modernism, and for making radical incursions into the art-historical canon by reconfiguring certain of its key works. A mid-career survey as well as comprehensive monograph, Rachel Lachowicz presents an overview of 20 years' worth of art-making. Labeled a "lipstick feminist" by the art world--she once recast Yves Klein's "Blue Venus" in cherry-red lipstick, and frequently uses cosmetics in her work--Lachowicz's art falls under many headings: appropriationist, conceptual, feminist, postminimalist. Her work is always visually lush and often sexually provocative; through it, she explores the crisscrossing relations between identity and the politics of mark-making. With 116 images in color, Rachel Lachowicz includes texts by Jillian Hernandez, Amelia Jones and George Melrod.
